We stated the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon to be the premium superwagon in our contrast examination where we match it versus the 2021 Audi RS 6 Avant. ! There is an epilogue to this tale.
Along with taking pleasure in the virtually 1,200 horse power of German muscle mass when driving, we determined to see which is the far better household truckster when it pertains to packing up for a journey. Invite to the Superwagon Baggage Examination!
To maintain points regular with every various other travel luggage examination we have actually performed in Michigan (instead of Riswick’s out in Rose city), we utilized the very same selection of bags and also bags. This consists of 2 carry-on bags sized (24 inches long, 15.5 large, 10 deep); one carry-on bag (217 L x 13.7 W x 9 D); one medium-size bag you need to inspect (245 L x 16.8 W x 11.5 D) and also 2 bigger, full-size bags (338 L x 21.5 W x 13 D) and also (281 L x 18 W x 10.5 D).
The specifications anticipate yet an additional Mercedes triumph, as it’s ranked for 35 cubic-feet of area behind the back seats to the Audi’s 30 cubic-feet. Far better numbers do not constantly inform the entire tale in the globe of travel luggage padding.
Allowed’s beginning with the Audi. Upon opening up the hatch, it’s right away noticeable that Audi has actually endangered overall energy for optimal design– and also young boy does it look great. The roofing system angles downward right into the columns prior to lastly standing straight partway down the back of the auto. It resembles exactly how a crossover sports car’s roofing system angle cuts right into what would certainly or else be a square, practical form. The hatch’s opening is on the slim side. It’s currently not looking great versus the a lot more traditionally-shaped E 63 S Wagon.
We throw just about the one medium-sized bag in immediately, and also everything type of fits. The bags are listed below the back seat line, indicating that you can still see spontaneous out the back home window. There is one trouble with the wild card elegant bag (22 L x 8.8 W x 12 D). It’s smushed in the edge. There’s no means that negative would certainly fit in the lower edge where it is if it were complete of un-squishable products. The RS 6 Avant’s size suffices to suit both full-size bags side-by-side, yet there’s a limitation to exactly how large it can go.
Seeing no place else to go yet up, we placed the tool bag on the top. This finished up being an useless initiative. It’s much also high, and also also switching over up the alignment with among the smaller sized bags on the top would not function. As an unscientific Deutschland apart, I rented out a routine A6 Avant in Germany a year earlier, and also it simply hardly healthy 4 full-size bags (side-by-side and also piled one on an additional). The roofing system angle nearly spoiled that wizard rental auto suggestion, also, yet it functioned.
You do not require to do much investigatory job or specification contrasts to reason that the Mercedes freight location is bigger than the Audi’s. One take a look at its even more upright columns and also typical wagon form makes it evident that the geometry remains in Stuttgart’s support.
When we pack all the bags minus the tool bag in conveniently,
This suspicion is verified. The lots flooring in the Mercedes is lipless, unlike the Audi that compels you to raise products up and also out. It’s a tiny point, yet it makes dumping this number and also packing of bags all that a lot easier.
You’ll discover that the bags in the rear of the Mercedes have even more area to take a breath. The elegant bag can be completely loaded and also left in the edge, and also there’s still a flawlessly great sight out the back. All that void up leading obtained us questioning …
Voila! The tool bag that was laughably also huge for the Audi fits over the various other bags in the Mercedes. You will certainly shed rearward vision on one side and also there’s a possibility it would fly ahead throughout unexpected stopping, yet this is where those additional dices in the E 63 S Wagon be available in convenient. Notification exactly how the indoor roofline angles upwards from either side of the auto to make even more area for points towards the ceiling. It’s this thoughtful style that enables you to pile the Mercedes greater. If we had an additional bag and also, most importantly, a freight cage to maintain bags from flying ahead, the Mercedes can securely fit a lot more products.
So there you have your victor, once more. The 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon is a wonder of design. It’s mind-tingling and also stimulating to drive on the ideal stretch of sidewalk. And also, it’ll take you and also your youngsters on a lengthy journey with area to save. The only point missing out on is the optional 3rd row used in the non-AMG wagon. So the youngsters can appreciate going 0-60 miles per hour in 3.4 secs while resting in reverse … currently we’re fantasizing.
